Fly for any length of time and you are likely to get a little swelling in your legs and possibly some cramps. Then there’s the dreaded walk off the plane, robot-style.
Alas, planes don’t come equipped with recumbent bikes that allow you to cycle along and keep up your circulation. The big problem with flying and legs is that without a significant amount of walking and movement, the blood and fluids descend to the feet and stay there. Foot and leg exercises help, but only to a small degree, as the space is so restricted that seat aerobics is not possible. Footbeat, a unique medical circulation booster may be your travel answer.
